After 5 years, we had to move our little brewery from our original location on Orcutt Road.




The good news is we finally moved into our amazing new spot (just around the corner from our beloved Orcutt home) that will allow us to have of course beer as well as food, wine, cider, an outdoor patio, and more than enough indoor space to host our live music and community events.





Bang the Drum Brewery has Moved Locations!

We are now open all moved in!

We’re in the last week of Spring and that means that this is your last chance to get a #ShepherdsPie before we roll out our Summer #Ratatouille Pie (which can be made vegan upon request)! 

We are swapping out/adding a few things to our menu this summer. Keep and eye out for an #IceCreamTaco we are working on which will combine Flaky Bois, vanilla bean ice cream and some house made caramel drizzle.

Friday April 29- The Sam Chase & The Untraditional at Bang the Drum Brewery
The day you stop growing is the day you start dying. This notion can produce a hairpin change of course for an artist; after all, the audience can sniff out the tired and the stale in an instant. For The Sam Chase & The Untraditional- and the reason we keep having them back- change and growth are the sustenance that keeps them dazzling crowds with every performance. They are constantly writing, tinkering, investigating how to improve what’s been established and push boundaries with that which is freshly hatched. The band puts in this work as a matter of being. They’re not chasing industry models or leveraging success, they approach their craft with a respect for the time they’ve dedicated and the contributions of their co-conspirators. If they appear to be having a ball in the process, it’s because the process itself is the part of the elixir. For a group of people who could do anything with anyone, they’ve chosen each other to share their living, exploring, rejoicing and grieving, and they’ve chosen to include us as well in their jubilant circus. As long as there remain dips and dives and hidden gems along their path, they will continue to walk it, and all of us who encompass For the Folks will continue to walk alongside them. This journey is a treat, the inherent change necessary, and the fact that we get to transform together is why people started singing songs in the first place. Music is calling, and like Muir to the mountains, we all must go.
